    Lightbulb Frame mounted motorcycle carrier

    I haven't built it yet as it is still in the design stage. I have posted some 3D renderings of the get-up though. Reason being because there is one slight issue with the design (that I can think of of course). Because the carrier is mounted through the reciever hitch there is going to be some wobbling that will occur because the HSS that goes into the receiver hitch is obviously smaller...any ideas how to fix that??

    HI

    you drill a hole on the side of the receiver hitch , weld a nut and as you tighten the bolt it squeeze the hss and it stop moving .

    Since you have the welder, why couldn't you modify the hitch to have a receiver on either side of the one in the middle? That way, you can have three inputs on the motorcycle bracket that would eliminate any torsional movement of just one. I wouldn't think it would interfere with the car bumper that way.

    The dual receiver idea does work very well. I built a cargo carrier for an RV trailer and used dual receivers and the thing is very, very stable in all directions. 2 receivers is plenty, no need to go with 3.

    I also build motorcycle carriers. Here are a few different designs I've built.
